Genesee Country Village and Museum – #7

This post continues with details and photographs from our visit in June to the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

We experienced an authentic 1800’s base ball game while at the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

The entrance to the base ball park was located at the northern end of the Turn of the Century portion of the Historic Village.

Silver Base Ball Park Sign

The first paragraph of this sign states that Silver Base Ball Park is a recreated ball field of the late 1860s. The rules and language of the game are different than those used in modern baseball games.

I will end this blog post with some of the photographs that I took while watching the base ball game.

    Really good action photos. In response to the question you posed on my blog. Actually that trail is part of a Rails to Trails project. A lot of work still needs to be done

    I've seen a game in really old uniforms too since the city of Douglas here does that every single summer – though not to the extent of the whole field being so old fashioned too!! That looks really cool!

    I'd no idea that these types of uniform were worn so long ago. Interesting how they've stuck with the same basic design.

    OH how neat… Don't you know that those men had a good time —although I'll bet they were HOT in those uniforms… I loved it… I remember those old scoreboards. My Daddy used to sell tickets at our little town's baseball park–and I'd go to the games with him… That's when I learned to love baseball. Thanks for sharing, Linda… LOVED it.Hugs,Betsy
